09:25:12midkyo amiconn, idc.
09:25:14amiconn[IDC]Dragon: What would I have to do if I want to run rockbox directly from flash?
09:26:40LinusNamiconn: a lot :-)
09:27:53[IDC]Dragonmorning guys
09:28:14[IDC]Dragonamiconn: I have in fact worked on running directly from flash
09:28:36[IDC]Dragonit works, but has some strange bugs
09:28:56[IDC]Dragonprobably because of our lacking "const" discipline
09:29:24 Part LinusN
09:29:24amiconnI know that. I would like to know how I have to build rockbox to use it that way
09:29:56*[IDC]Dragon tries to remember, it's been a while
09:30:25[IDC]Dragonit's a flag in the make file or so
09:30:35amiconnPerhaps I'm even going to dig into the issues some day
09:30:59 Join Zagor [242] (
09:31:00[IDC]DragonI abandoned it because of the space constraints
09:31:26[IDC]Dragonit's worse than the 200k an .ajz allows us
09:31:29amiconn[IDC]Dragon: When compiling with gcc 3.3.1 (cygwin), it should fit again
09:32:17amiconnIf I am correct, the 2nd flash image starts at 68K in the ROM, so we should be able to use 256K-68K = 188K
09:32:36[IDC]Dragonfor V1 recorders, the 2nd flash image starts at 68k
09:32:50[IDC]Dragonyou've been faster
09:33:02[IDC]Dragonyou're correct
09:33:15[IDC]Dragonit's worse for the FM
09:33:15 Join LinusN [200] (
09:33:29[IDC]Dragonsomebody with an FM at hand?
09:33:53amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Current cvs .ajz is 181.24K when compiled with gcc 3.3.1
09:34:19[IDC]Dragontight squeeze ;-)
09:34:38midkhey LinusN
09:34:41midkand Zagor
09:34:54[IDC]Dragonno FM user around?
09:34:59midkevery dev usually joins within about 10 minutes of each other
09:35:01midknot i.
09:36:01amiconn[IDC]Dragon: The v2/fm .ajz is 185.21K compiled with gcc 3.3.1, so if the flash image does not start later than 68K for these it should fit as well (iirc flash sectors are 4K)
09:36:24[IDC]Dragonbut it starts later...
09:36:33*[IDC]Dragon checks
09:37:04LinusNi have an fm
09:37:59[IDC]Dragonit should start at 76k, if my files tell me correct
09:38:28[IDC]DragonLinusN: what does the info screen say if you play an .ucl?
09:39:00amiconnArgh... Throw out the Archos fw from the first image and replace it with a small .ajz loader
09:39:19[IDC]Dragonamiconn: I was thinking about that, too
09:39:47[IDC]Dragonwe'd need to make a very safe mini-Rockbox then
09:41:46amiconnImho it doesn't need to be able to play any sound; only load .ajz, some error handling, and possibly some very basic browsing functionality
09:41:58LinusN[IDC]Dragon: i haven't flashed my fm, so it says "no image"
09:42:10[IDC]DragonLinusN: ah, logical
09:42:27[IDC]DragonLinusN is a chicken...
09:42:41amiconnLinusN the plugin breaker ;-)
09:43:03[IDC]Dragonamiconn the not-function-sorter
09:43:10LinusNamiconn: :-)
09:43:28LinusNthe progressbar exterminator
09:43:36amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Yes I know that I should've done it, but I really didn't have that much time
09:43:56[IDC]Dragondidn't the comment say he who breaks plugin compatibility has to sort the plugin functions? ;-)
09:44:07LinusNthat was me :-)
09:45:38[IDC]Dragonamiconn: Just digged it out, I have an alternative .lds file for flash linking. This wasn't checked it. Do you want it?
09:46:00[IDC]Dragon...checked in...
09:46:48amiconn[IDC]Dragon: I suppose that after compiling/ linking with the alternate .lds, I would have to rename rockbox.bin to xyz.ucl and flash that?
09:47:06LinusNno, you uclpack it
09:47:29[IDC]Dragonahem, no. You need a "special" version of uclpack which has my extra option of not compressing
09:47:39LinusNah, silly me
09:47:42amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Ah
09:48:03midkLinusN: in your windows exe installer you give the option of "Recorder 6, 10, 20"
09:48:06[IDC]Dragonthe flash infrastructure needs those .ucl headers around it
09:48:10midki fail to see "15" included
09:48:20LinusNmidk: ah
09:50:22LinusNmidk: fixed
09:50:34LinusN(in upcoming builds)
09:50:42midki mean.. good work.
09:56:29amiconnLinusN: Is there are reason why uclpack isn't included in the tools directory?
09:57:27amiconnI mean, while uclpack isn't genuine Rockbox code, some tools that are there aren't either
09:58:31LinusNwhat does the ucl license say?
10:00:02amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Imho you could check in in then, including your no-compression extension
10:00:27[IDC]Dragonit's quite a tree
10:00:39Zagorthat's why we don't have it :)
10:01:08amiconnAh ok
10:01:46Zagorall tools we have are single-file tools, and all except one are custom-written for rockbox
10:02:34[IDC]Dragonamiconn: can you compile uclpack?
10:03:09amiconnShould be possible if I have the sources (I have cygwin installed complete with gcc)
10:03:26[IDC]Dragonno problem then
10:08:21[IDC]Dragonamiconn: I just sent you an email with the stuff
10:09:22[IDC]DragonHow do I upgrade to gcc 3.3.1?
10:09:26amiconnThank you, got it.
10:10:38amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Get sh-elf-gcc from Eric Lassauge's cygwin mirror, as described here
10:11:17[IDC]Dragonah, sorry for RTFM questions
10:12:18[IDC]Dragonamiconn: running from flash has some funny side effects
10:12:39amiconnAny examples?
10:12:49[IDC]Dragona rather intrigued one is: you can't jun the flash plugin then
10:13:45[IDC]Dragonbecause during flashing, other code must not touch it
10:14:38[IDC]Dragonor in other words: you can't reprogram the memory under your feet
10:14:54amiconn...cause your're overwriting your own code. Then flash plugin would have to check this condition and you would have to RoLo into an .ajz before flashing
10:15:15[IDC]Dragonbut you can simply run a .ajz and be RAM-based again, yes.
10:15:53[IDC]Dragonbut this is a nitty-gritty detail.
10:16:19 Join Christi-S [0] (
10:16:24[IDC]Dragonthe code needs some more debugging beforehand
10:16:38amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Is it possible to access the flash at all (for reading) while flashing?
10:16:52[IDC]DragonI remember that it failed to load any plugin
10:17:08Christi-SI feel the urge to mention how much I hate OpenOffice again.
10:17:15[IDC]Dragon(some Rockbox bug which only happens in ROM)
10:17:21amiconn[IDC]Dragon: I think I will look into it
10:17:24Christi-SOh, and that the ID3 viewer doesn't seem to work in the simulator.
10:17:44LinusNit doesn't?
10:17:57[IDC]DragonI narrowed it down a bit, it looked like the plain file open failes.
10:18:13Christi-SNope. Neither player or recorder.
10:18:21LinusNChristi-S: what happens?
10:18:37Christi-SNothing. Key combo just doesn't do anything.
10:19:01LinusNx11 or win32?
10:19:07[IDC]Dragonamiconn: you can read the flash again after completing a sector, but this won't help much.
10:19:09Christi-SAnd there's a bug in the player display code that means most of the plugins don't update the screen the way they should.
10:19:18[IDC]Dragonbut don't worry about that yet.
10:19:52amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Perhaps we should make the flash plugin totally self-contained then (if I get the other issues sorted)
10:19:52Christi-SNo, sorry. Linux.
10:20:02Christi-SNot tried it on Windows.
10:20:15[IDC]Dragonamiconn: well, first things first.
10:20:16LinusNChristi-S: key combos work pretty bad in the x11 sim
10:20:42LinusNit's a button driver issue
10:21:09*Christi-S nods. The enter key doesn't work at all if you run it under VNC. (My solution - don't do that then).
10:21:13[IDC]Dragonthe flash plugin itself rund from RAM, so if you have the whole file preloaded and interrupts disabled, you can flash.
10:21:44[IDC]Dragonbut you'd need to restart afterwards.
10:21:52Christi-SLinus - the other combos work for me sometimes. The ID3 viewer is the only one I consistently can't get.
10:21:59[IDC]Dragonno chance to output a status
10:22:29Christi-SNot too much of a problem, since I took a screenshot off my FMR, and the player is much the same, but I thought you'd want to know.
10:22:30[IDC]Dragonfor now, having to RoLo first would be the minor issue.
10:22:51[IDC]DragonChristi-S: sorry for crossing in your discussion...
10:23:14Christi-S[IDC]Dragon - no problem. My fault for starting it in the middle of yours.
10:23:18amiconn[IDC]Dragon: You could output a status as well, if the flash plugin is self-contained. This goes for both firmware_flash and rockbox_flash of course.
10:23:39amiconnAfter that just jump to the coldstart address
10:23:48[IDC]Dragonthis would have to include LCD output then
10:23:59[IDC]Dragondon't worry about it yet

11:34:34Christi-S-Has anyone documented the bookmark functionality anywhere?
11:35:12LinusNyes, the original author did, on his website, iirc
11:36:45LinusNbut i can't find it now...
11:37:05Christi-S-Bugger. I don't really understand it at all.
11:40:19LinusNwhat is it that you don't understand?
11:40:45Christi-S-Let me go grab my JB.
11:42:29Christi-S-What does the "load last bookmark" option do.
11:43:29LinusNit loads the last bookmark for the file you are playing
11:44:00LinusNi.e play a file, and it fast forwards to the last bookmarked position
11:44:22Christi-S-OK - what's the point of that? Why not just play the bookmark?
11:44:35LinusNthe bookmark file contains many bookmarks
11:45:38Christi-S-Hmmm? On my JB it saves the bookmark as a file in the local directory.
11:45:44Christi-S-You can see why I'm confused, right?
11:45:57LinusNthere is one bookmark file per directory
11:46:15LinusNcontaining the bookmarks for all files in that dir
11:46:21Christi-S-Ah, got you.
11:46:41Christi-S-What does playing the bookmark file do if it contains more than one bookmark?
11:47:56LinusNit presents a bookmark menu where you can select the bookmark you want
11:48:59LinusNit does that even if there is only one bookmark in the file
11:49:58Christi-S-So it does, must've got confused.
11:50:30Christi-S-Right, that's cleared that up, I think. I can now probably document the damn thing.
11:51:27*Christi-S- looks at the acres of manual still to go and wonders why I agreed to take this on again.
11:51:47LinusNyou don't have to do it all
11:51:53LinusNlunch time!

13:03:33Christi-SAnyone here remember how Stereo Wide and Stereo Narrow work?
13:05:07*Christi-S assumes that the "Stereo" setting means that the MAS does no mixing and passes the stereo signals straight to the outputs.
13:05:58[IDC]DragonChristi-S: should be, yes
13:06:18amiconnStereo passes the stereo signal straight through
13:06:25Christi-SWhat about wide and narrow?
13:06:31[IDC]Dragonnarrow means some degree of downmix towards mono
13:06:58amiconnStereo narrow mixes a small amount of the left channel to the right and vice versa, so narrowing the stereo base.
13:07:01[IDC]Dragonwide is amplifying the channel differences
13:08:19Christi-SSo how does wide work?
13:08:36[IDC]Dragon[13:07] <[IDC]Dragon> wide is amplifying the channel differences
13:08:49Christi-SHow does it amplify them?
13:09:10*Christi-S apologises for all the questions. Just want to make sure I've got the docs right.
13:09:16amiconnStereo wide does also mix the channels, but it inverts the phase, this (virtually) widens the stereo base
13:09:27[IDC]Dragonwell, say it computes the mono from averaging the two
13:09:41[IDC]Dragonand the difference
13:10:09[IDC]Dragonthen you can reconstruct each channel by adding the difference to the mono
13:10:23[IDC]Dragon(actually, half the difference)
13:10:29*Christi-S nods. With you so far.
13:10:45[IDC]Dragonor you could scale that difference
13:10:56[IDC]Dragonfactor of 1 os stereo
13:11:20[IDC]Dragonforctor of 0 would give mono
13:11:32[IDC]Dragongrr, factor, i mean
13:11:56[IDC]Dragona factor <1 is narrow, >1 is wide
13:12:12Christi-SAh, right.
13:12:32*Christi-S tries to think of a way to explain that that won't be confusing in the manual.
13:12:57[IDC]DragonI think the MAS datasheet has some graphics about it
13:13:08*Christi-S nods.
13:13:17Christi-SI like stereo wide myself.
13:13:37amiconnAdding to [IDC]Dragon's explanation, Karaoke mode does only use the difference signal and drops the average signal
13:13:41[IDC]DragonI don't like anything that messes with the "true" sound
13:15:07amiconn[IDC]Dragon: Then you shouldn't like mp3 either
13:15:24[IDC]Dragonto some extent, this is true
13:15:44[IDC]DragonI definitely dislike 128 kBit/s
13:16:00*Christi-S has found MP3 at 256 Kb/s to be pretty much indistinguishable.
13:16:13[IDC]Dragonyes, that's plenty
13:16:18Christi-SExcept for Lever St. by Death in Vegas, which seems to be a pathological case.
13:16:48*[IDC]Dragon has never heard about that
13:17:05[IDC]Dragonlive recordings are difficult
13:17:24Christi-SI may have just hit a bug in an earlier LAME - I ought to try re-encoding it.
13:17:48Christi-SBut it's lots of messy feedback filters and really heavy bass.
13:18:22[IDC]Dragonpersonally, I like 192 kBit, or use VBR close to that if encoding myself
13:18:36[IDC]Dragon(VBR rulez!)
13:18:42Christi-SI went for the overkill option.
13:18:56Christi-S256 - VBR wasn't that great when I started encoding.
13:19:20Zagori like −−alt-preset extreme. it mostly ends up at about 220 kbit
13:19:36Christi-SBut I've switched to ABR since. Still at 256 though. I think I can perceive a difference. Could be psychological though.
13:19:47[IDC]DragonI very much prefer the concept of constant quality. a constant bitrate doesn't help me.
13:20:08ZagorChristi-S: ABR is vbr, only it uses a different algorithm for selecting bitrate
13:21:07*Christi-S nods. Hence why I switched. The VBR algorythm has got more mature and ABR minimises the danger of the encoder getting it wrong and throwing away too much data.
13:22:07Christi-SI freely admit my choices are extreme, but I basically kept pushing up the encoding until I was sure I couldn't hear a difference.
13:22:37Christi-S(On a piece of music I knew really well - Tubular Bells II by Mike Oldfield, as it happens)
13:22:41Zagori'm not so sure it does. abr can actually limit so you don't as high bitrates as the material could require.
13:23:12Christi-SAh, but if I'm using 256 abr, shouldn't limit too much.
13:23:23Zagori have that. do you remember any particularly tricky sections? (just for fun)
13:23:48Christi-SNot off the top of my head, no, sorry. This was about 4 years ago.
13:24:20Christi-SAlthough The Bell is a good track - has a lot of different instruments in it and vocals as well.
13:25:34Zagori have way too many of my records encoded at 128 :(
13:25:52*amiconn does also prefer constand quality over constant bitrate
13:26:29Zagori wonder if there's a company nearby that can reencode them for me...
13:26:33amiconnI use lame −−preset standard most of the time, which comes out at ~200 kbps on average
13:27:00[IDC]DragonDon't know where the 128 came from. This must have been the default of the first encoder?
13:27:04amiconnBut it can go as low as ~160 kbps or as high as >256 kbps depending on the music
13:27:26Zagor[IDC]Dragon: yeah, i think so
13:28:58*[IDC]Dragon deleted most of the 128 tracks
13:30:03Christi-SI'm actually having fun with the screenshots for the manual. Picking a lot of tracks I like from my music collection.
13:31:28Zagorhehe, subliminally altering the world's taste in music ;)
13:32:53 Join NibbIer [0] (
13:39:48Christi-SQuality is largely subjective, anyway. And encoder dependent. I like to at least have some guarantee that I'm not missi
13:40:01Christi-Smissing too much of the original.
13:40:27Christi-SOf course, I am not an MP3 guru, just someone that likes music.
13:48:44Christi-SWhat would you use Auto Volume with a long delay for?
13:49:37*corbell wants some mp3s
13:49:49corbellthe shawshank redemption is a good movie, by the way :p
13:50:17Christi-SHere is not a good place to ask. There are many MP3 swapping IRC channels - try there.
13:50:27ZagorChristi-S: the longer the delay, the less "pumping" you get. some people prefer a long delay to get rid of the pumping as much as possible
13:50:39Christi-SWhat is pumping?
13:50:52Zagorwhen the volume goes up and down
13:50:55corbellsudden changes in sound volume
13:51:09Christi-SAh, right.
13:51:24corbellI usually use LAME
13:51:32corbellalbeit the settings really vary on what I'm encoding
13:51:44Zagoryou can hear it on some radio stations that automatically reduces the volume of the background music when the dj speaks, and then resumes when he goes silent. it can sound very annoying.
13:51:53corbellI want 30 minute or so long music files and audio books to be 'smaller'
13:52:20 Join lImbus [0] (
13:52:28corbellbut I suppose now I've got enough storage to pretty much make that concern null and void
13:53:53Christi-SRight now for the tricky bit - goes and looks up Linus' MAS docs.
13:55:17*corbell almost wants to pickup an archos recorder 20 to keep as a collector's item :p
13:56:18Christi-SIf I were rich, I'd buy a couple of spare JBFMs now just in case.
13:56:29corbellYeah, they're going to disappear eventually.
13:56:34corbellI mean, no one is making new ones.
13:56:51corbellI've got a JBFM, but again, as I stated earlier, it is missing the damned battery cover
13:57:00corbellso that makes if effectively useless to me.
13:57:08Christi-SYou should be able to improvise something.
13:57:20corbellLinusN: I loaned it out to my brother after I bought a new mp3 player
13:57:25corbellhe took the thing apart
13:57:31corbelland lost parts :P
13:57:31Christi-SReally all that's needed is a bit of metal to connect the two batteries together.
13:57:45Christi-SYou could possibly do it with a paper clip and some tape.
13:57:56corbellPaper clip wouldn't be a decent conductor, would it?
13:58:12Christi-SWell, it'd have to be a plain metal one.
13:58:22corbellI mean, you would want something essentially equivalent in size and material to the previous one
13:58:34LinusNwow, that lid is pretty big, nothing you lose just like that
13:58:39corbellIt'd be easier if I could just find a broken JBFM
13:58:47corbellLinusN: He is a moron, seriously.
13:59:03LinusNi believe you :-)
13:59:30LinusNlosing one of those screws is one thing, but...
13:59:39corbellheh, the screws could be replaced
14:00:42corbellThe worst part is most of the paint is worn off, and that includes the serial numbers on the rear.
14:00:54corbellSo I can't really try to get additional parts from archos, I don't think
14:04:48corbellI just now tried using a little piece of metal to act as a makeshift contact
14:04:51corbellI get an hd error
14:04:59corbellthe voltage could be too low, I think

17:01:15silencerdwihno: but i'm not really sure to understand exactly what happen when the path is not correct (in the doc, it is said that a simple`dir` could create a playlist: but there's a letter drive before each track...)
17:01:44silencerwell, i'm checking out the source to browse by myself
17:02:06dwihnosilencer: I think it actually works if you have the complete path
17:02:47silencerbut X:/toto is not a correct path on rockbox, but it does work ...
17:03:00silencer(it should be /toto)
17:03:21*Christi-S decides the Line Selector setting is really in the wrong place.
17:03:44dwihnoI think the settings is a jungle
17:03:46Christi-SShould be in status/scrollbar rather than LCD, I think.
17:03:58Christi-SYeah, it needs a damn good overhaul.
